The Death of OS X

Okay, so OS X isn’t going anywhere, but it’s dead to me.

I have made a decision, and that decision is … no more Apple computers.

Mind you, this was not an easy decision. Currently, I have 3 Macs (1 iMac and 2 MacBook Pros), and I have devoted a lot of time and energy to the platform.

Yesterday, however, I realized that a change needed to be made. For the last two or three years, Apple has put their computer operating systems on the backburner while they focused on iOS, and this lack of focus has begun to show more and more in recent months.

“Gee Rex, that’s pretty vague, can you give us any specific examples?”

If I had the time, I could give you a dozen examples, but since I don’t, I will address the two that tormented me yesterday.

The first was my long-running battle with OS X memory management.

Yesterday morning, my iMac was so slow as to be unusable. I got a spinning beachball every time I changed focus in Eclipse or changed tabs in Chrome. When I clicked to launch Google Earth, it took three minutes for the splash screen to appear. Three minutes.

Why?

This is why:

Apple Memory Fail

Apple Memory Fail

Instead of freeing up memory when you close an application or file, OS X caches it in case you open the same application or file later. This cache resides in “inactive” memory.

But, what if you have no intention of re-opening that program or file for a long time? Well, you have two options. You can either reboot the machine or open a command line and type ‘purge’. Frankly, I do the latter several times each day.

You see, OS X is supposed to allocate more memory to running programs when they need it, but in my experience, this does not happen. At least not quickly or efficiently. Instead, Mac OS lives in the past. Instead of freeing memory on demand, it prioritizes memory based on programs that you might, at some point in the future, re-open.

This does not work well for me. It works so poorly that my MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM and a 2.3Ghz processor runs circles around my iMac with a 2.8Ghz processor and 4GB of RAM. Sure, the operating system is fine for updating Facebook or making a quick movie, but once OS X touches the swap file for an ardent multi-tasker, it’s game over. It’s beach ball city until you reboot or purge.

Apple - Spinning Beachball of Death

Memory management wasn’t my only problem, however.

Yesterday afternoon, I found it necessary to transfer several photo folders from my Mac to a Windows machine. As the files were transferring, there was a temporary interruption in the Wi-Fi connection. The Windows machine handled the broken connection gracefully … while not so well with my premium ‘think different’ OS X machine.

Instead, the below dialog box remained on my screen for 7 hours.

Apple File Copy Fail

Apple File Copy Fail

Seven hours. There was no way to exit, end, or kill the processes. At least no obvious way.

I had to reboot the machine. That’s right, I had to end every task I had running, and reboot the machine just to clean up the broken file transfer. And … I couldn’t even do that gracefully. The OS wouldn’t reboot itself, because its own Finder was hung.

Apple Quit Fail

Apple Quit Fail

What is this, 1988? This is embarrassing. It’s Mickey Mouse programming. It’s Windows 95 all over again.

The “world’s most advanced operating system” cannot kill a dialog box when the transfer is broken?

Really?

I had to reboot the old fashioned way. The “it just doesn’t work” way.

Apple Shutdown -r

Apple Shutdown -r

Fortunately, Apple finally pushed an OS X update to me last week, and I was hopeful that it would fix my problems.

It did not.

Instead, it added an “App Store” to my main menu. Apple updated my OS simply to give me a place to buy more stuff from Apple. Wow, it was like a dream come true.

Or not.

At this point, the way I use a computer (furiously and with lots of app switching), Macs are the slowest computers on the market, bordering on unusable, and I am not alone in this observation.

One of my forum members recently purchased a MacBook Pro. I was even somewhat instrumental in recommending it (I honestly thought it would work for his “light” use). Shortly after receiving it, he returned it.

Why?

I hope he does not mind, but I am going to quote his entire message:

“I’m returning the macbook.

The thing bogs down way too often with that spinning multi-colored wheel.

There are some things the mac does better and somethings that the pc can do better but for my needs the pc allows me to work quicker and since windows 7 I’ve never had a crash or need to restart along with the fact that there is no program equivalent to Windows Live Writer for a Mac.

Adding more RAM would void the warranty so forget it. I’m returning the macbook.

It is rock solid build wise but if it is the 4GB of RAM or Dual core processor that is not up to the task I don’t really care. For $1300 it shouldn’t be an issue.”

Cult members take note: This guy had absolutely no dog in the OS war. He loves his iPod, loves his iPhone, and because of this, he bought his first Mac in good faith expecting it to be superior to Windows 7 in every way. It let him down.

“Gee Rex, it must just be you and that forum guy. I own all kinds of Apple stuff and I never have ANY of those problems!”

I’m sure you don’t.

If you are like most Apple users, you’re fine with a phone that does not multi-task and you find 2GB of data to be more than enough to get you through the month.

I, on the other hand, use 10 times that much mobile data month after month. I take pictures while my phone is spitting out GPS directions, while three photos are uploading to my blog. I consume so much power that I carry an external battery pack in my pocket for my Android.

I don’t sit in Broadway coffee shops with intentionally messed-up hair hitting refresh on the Bank of America site to see if my trust fund check has cleared. I DO things. Lots of things. At the same time.

Increasingly, Apple is not for do’ers. It is not for power users. It is not for creators. It is not for people who think different. It is for posers. It is for hipsters. It is for metrosexuals. It is for wannabes and pretenders.

If you have believed nothing else I have ever said, believe this … In 2011, there is no bigger symbol of conformity than the big, glowing, piece of fruit.

Apples makes mediocre Chinese products which are under-spec’d, over-marketed, and over-priced.

How overpriced?

When I first got my iMac, the first thing I did was upgrade the memory. I thought about buying it pre-upgraded from Apple, but they wanted something like $500 for an extra 4GB of memory. Not just any memory, mind you, but Apple memory, where the secret ingredient is magic pixie dust and purple elephant dung.

When the computer arrived, and I opened the memory slot, I was surprised to find that “Apple Memory” was in fact Hynix brand memory.

What is Hynix you ask?

It’s cheap commodity off-brand memory. It’s the inexpensive memory modules you can typically find in Walmart, Target, or K-Mart next to the white boxes of eMachines. It’s also “Apple Memory”. Stuff Steve Jobs sells to gullible rubes at astronomical markups.

My three year fling with Apple reminds me of my flirtation with the Southwestern USA.

Growing up in Washington, DC and New York City, I became accustomed to crowded conditions, grit, cloudy skies, thunderstorms, and all of the trappings of an east coast urban upbringing.

When I visited Los Angeles, I thought it was just the bees knees. Sunny skies, palm trees, beaches … I also drove through the “ghettos” of Compton and marveled at how even the poor people had personal automobiles and, get this, single family houses.

Single family houses!

It seemed like a different world. Where I came from, only the affluent lived in detached houses, and I could count the number of friends who owned their own cars on one hand. In the Southwest, however, this was everyone’s birthright. You could work part time at Taco Bell and have these things.

It seemed great, and people seemed to love it. After all, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the USA.

Hollywood California

Hollywood California

All that glitters is not gold, however. When I eventually moved to LA, I realized that it was all hype. Los Angeles is the world’s largest 7-11. Strip malls and taco stands. Strippers and Scientologists. The place was full of ordinary people desperately trying their best to escape their unglamorous pasts.

Apple is the Los Angeles of computing. It’s form over function. It’s an identity crisis with an ironic t-shirt and a Fedora hat.

And, once again, I’m leaving LA.

I am going to build an ugly computer. An uncool computer. A computer that will be laughed at by people who pay $150 for 500GB hard drives for their MacBooks. My computer will have 12GB of Ram, 4TB of disk space, and cost about $1,400. Sure it will be made from Chinese components (I have no choice at this point), but instead of being designed by an androgynous liver-thief, it will be designed and assembled by me in Seattle, Washington USA.

Most importantly, it will run Linux.

Linux runs on whatever machine I choose. Linux doesn’t charge me $30 for service packs. If you have an IQ anywhere near the triple digits, Linux just works.

While bedheaded posers sit at Starbucks and tap out Yo La Tengo reviews on Pitchfork media, I will sit in my nerd cave tweaking source code, compiling the precise features I need (and no more) into a monolithic kernel that efficiently powers the very specific hardware combination I have chosen.

Goodbye Mac and the Cult of Apple.

It is time to take back my computing environment. It’s time to pop the beach balls. It’s time to regain multi-tasking. It is time to stop being a tool of a corporate sweatshop operator while pretending to be alternative.

It’s time to think different.

    What custom ROM are you running?

    I am running Stock Froyo with Sense UI and have no memory management issues. I ran into them when I ran an app killer but nothing since I dropped that.

    Once again, I say this with love. You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about. Inactive memory gets assigned just as if it were free RAM if you start up another app that needs it and fits in the space. The only reason it retains cache in inactive memory is if you need to access the same thing quickly. There is no need to Purge it or reboot, though you can do those things. As I’ve told you before, stuffing ten pounds of shit in a five pound sack and then complaining when things get messy is not the fault of the OS. it’s the fault of the user.

    Please don’t give me this shit about how much you use computers. I use toilets regularly, but I’m not a plumber. However, I do know computers and operating systems. I’ve built them, written the code, designed applications and OS components. I’ve studied them, used them heavily. I understand how information gets routed from one subsystem to another. It’s with over 30 years of professional knowledge that I tell you, quite lovingly, that you’re full of shit.

    On the file transfer, did you click the little “x” in the circle to end the hung session?

    On the other hand, I have no Apple stock or any skin in the game. Do whatever you want with your computers. The only one suffering is you and bitching about it hasn’t changed a damn thing yet.

      Once again, I say this with love. You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about

      Anything is possible.

      Inactive memory gets assigned just as if it were free RAM if you start up another app that needs it and fits in the space. The only reason it retains cache in inactive memory is if you need to access the same thing quickly. There is no need to Purge it or reboot, though you can do those things.

      I understand that this is how it works in theory.

      I am not arguing with the theory. I am arguing with practice.

      As I’ve told you before, stuffing ten pounds of shit in a five pound sack and then complaining when things get messy is not the fault of the OS. it’s the fault of the user.

      There is no Apple shortcoming that iPeople are not willing to blame on the user.

      I remember reading a Macrumors forum thread where dozens of people were complaining about damaged 27″ iMacs out of the box. They were crushed in the same part of the screen upon delivery, and the posters had pictures.

      When they posted these pictures, like clockwork, and on queue, an army of iPeople rushed in and blamed the user while SCREAMING “I guess you don’t know how to unbox a computer”, “clearly it’s user error”, “hey I bet Microsoft is paying you to post these pictures”, etc.

      Later, it was revealed that it was an an Apple packaging error from the factory, and the faithful lauded Apple for being “honest” and blah blah blah. Nobody apologized to the besmirched users.

      The primary tenant of religion is the belief that a deity is omnipotent. Altruistic. Infallible, and that all bad things are the result of people who disbelieve (heretics).

      This is a cornerstone of the cult of Mac.

      Apple Computer once had a paid position called “Chief Evangelist”.

      Unfortunately, religion is bullshit.

      If you are defining 4GB as a “five pound sack”, then one would have to wonder why the Windows and Linux “five pound sacks” can hold so much more than an Apple “five pound sack”.

      Is this the fault of the sack-stuffer, or is it a flaw with the sack itself?

      Ask 5 different people, get 5 different answers, none of them 100% correct.

      Please don’t give me this shit about how much you use computers. I use toilets regularly, but I’m not a plumber. However, I do know computers and operating systems. I’ve built them, written the code, designed applications and OS components. I’ve studied them, used them heavily. I understand how information gets routed from one subsystem to another. It’s with over 30 years of professional knowledge that I tell you, quite lovingly, that you’re full of shit.

      I’ve built dozens of computers in my lifetime and hundreds of lines of my very own code are part of the current distribution of the Linux Operating system which is currently being used by millions of people worldwide.

      We can measure dicks all day, but it doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things.

      On the file transfer, did you click the little “x” in the circle to end the hung session?

      Yes. About 15 times. That’s why, in the picture, it says “stopping” under each transfer oh studier of operating systems.

      I’m sure it was user error, though.

      Let me guess, every Apple user knows that you have to press the ‘x’ at least 16 times?

      On the other hand, I have no Apple stock or any skin in the game. Do whatever you want with your computers. The only one suffering is you and bitching about it hasn’t changed a damn thing yet.

      Bitching is every bit as important as praising. It is how the truth is vetted. It’s why the Internet exists. Well, that and porn.

      There are some people in the world who cannot resist brainwashing. Bandwagons provide for them an identity, and this identify is invaluable to them as people. These same people pay $500 for Hynix memory. These same people would pay $200,000 for a Honda Civic if they thought it was the cool thing to do.

      Then, there would be another group of people shouting that Honda Civics were not worth $200,000, and that the people who bought them were insane.

      Would anyone be right?

      Would anyone be wrong?

      Maybe, maybe not, but trying to stop the debate would be futile, and believe it or not … some people would listen to reason and make decisions according to which argument they found most compelling.

      Probably not many people, but certainly some.

    Hot on the heals of Rex swearing off Apple computers, Steve Jobs up and quits the company. Don’t tell me that what Rex says and does doesn’t have weight out in the real world.

  • James

    For the Finder copy hangup, did you try forcing a restart of Finder? I’m not sure offhand but I would think it would kill those copy processes. (The apple logo menu -> force application quit bit on the menu bar. Don’t have a Mac in front of me so apologies if I am misremembering.)

    The primary tenant of religion…

    I didn’t know you could rent religion.

    I have been running mostly Linux since about 1998.

    I hated the original Macs during the time of DOS because I can touch-type, remember commands and using a mouse just slows me down.

    But when DOS turned into Windows and I was introduced to Solaris at work, I came to a decision point.

    More than posers and metrosexuals, I hate gigantic corporations that attempt to use market share to squash competition.

    The early ’90′s saw Microsoft do some pretty horrible things – sometimes to their OWN OS – in order to defeat DRDOS, Netscape and others. It is truly scary how close we came to having an MS-only internet. If Ballmer and Gates hadn’t been blinded by the billions of dollars flowing their way, they might not have briefly dismissed the internet as “not invented here”.

    This lapse was enough to allow the internet to mature past the point that MS could capture it. There was a close brush there, however. Does anyone remember commercial websites that were IE-only?

    Hating Mac for it’s happy-facedness (before they went BSD) and loathing MS for their ruthless destruction of numerous neophyte companies and technologies, I was left with no choice but Linux.

    I do everything I need with Linux with the exception of my scanner. I have to run W2k in a VM when I want to scan. If I ever start doing a lot of scanning, I’ll just buy one that has Linux drivers.

    The developers of Open Sores software are not beholden to the giant evil corporations – Region Encoding? Ha! Content Scrambling? Ha! My desktop is not cluttered with crap from people who’ve paid Microsoft for the opportunity to annoy me, my OS isn’t built by a company who’s trying to whore me out to every DRM pipe-dream that comes out the entertainment industry poop-chute and when I email pictures out of my photo-organizer, they don’t have an advertisement tacked onto the end from HP or Kodak or Samsung.

    MythTV, Mplayer, LVC, TvTime, Cinelerra, XMMS, Audacity, Gimp, Apache, Thunderbird, Firefox, Open Office and MySQL, FTW!

    Welcome back, Rex.

    My iMac runs like a champ. as do my iPhone and iPad. I work with Microshit products all day, so it is nice to come home and chill to devices that just work. Wondering if it is the douches at the keyboard end causing the issues….

    My God is better than your God, and if you don’t realize that, then it must be your problem because God is never wrong.

    Tons of people have problems with Macs, they are just shouted down by the Mac faithful as were atheists in the New World.

    I don’t even know this guy, just ran across his site today:

    http://accesstechnews.wordpress.com/2009/10/14/windows-7-vs-ubuntu-9-10-vs-os-x-10-6/

    But what about perceived performance? How fast and responsive do each of these operating systems feel to use and interact with?

    MacOS X 10.6 is a but sluggish. I hear the Mac-faithful screaming now. But, seriously, if you use all three operating systems (on modern hardware) on a regular basis, you begin to notice how often the dreaded “spinning beach ball of death” appears on MacOS X. It’s not a deal breaker. But it happens far, far too often. Likewise the file browsing experience (Finder) is quite sluggish even on modern (made this year) hardware.

    Ubuntu 9.10 is nice and peppy. You don’t spend a lot of time sitting around waiting, while staring at an hour-glass or spinning beach ball. That said, launching some applications can be a bit pokey. Not as slow as MacOS X, but I’d like it to be faster.

    People who don’t find Macs adequate tend to leave Macs. This leaves the faithful behind to shout about their superiority. It’s a myth, though, and I believe that over 90% of the population is aware that it is a myth.

    The other 10% blames the user.

    If a Mac works for you, that’s great.

    I will submit, however, that if it does work for you, you probably aren’t a huge multi-tasker. Mac is fine for browsing, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc, but it’s kind of a toy when it comes to hardcore usage.

    In the end, OS X works for Apple, not you.

    There’s a reason they released a Service Pack simply to add an App Store to your menu.

    Think different.

  • jim

    Windows 7 gives me Explorer errors all the time and then restarts, the global contracts I manage for clients includes 40,000+ Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7 pc’s which constantly have connectivity issues, virus issues, application incompatibility issues etc etc.

    Most end users are not an expert like you are Rex (and I sincerely mean this) so systems like OS X 10.6 and the Apple platform allow them to enjoy their PC experience rather than them needing a 100 page “microsoft for dummies” manual on how to install an app.

    I have also owned 10 or so smartphones and the Apple is by far the best overall unit I have ever had (used primarily for work..email, contacts, calendar and phone). My Windows Mobile 5, 6, 6.1 and my Palm were all inferior.

    Do I like the Apple store and how Apple tries to control me? Hell no..so all my systems are cracked/jail broken and I install what I want, where I want and for whatever reason I want. I am also not limited to the horrendous ATT network when I travel in the USA.

    So..the products work for me and a lot of other people too.

    I used to be a fanboy but I’m too busy now and the struggle for survival of the platform is long past. So I just use my macs and they remain essentially invisible. Every couple of weeks I get a software update dialog box I click “OK”. That’s it! No slow downs, no crashes, no hangs, no virii, no problems… The family has 4, 3 in the macbook pro form and a 24″ imac. There’s an iphone and a few ipods in the house. the wife and kids manage their own stuff. I never touch it. But this is still a mechanical world and there can be failure. Last month my wife put an audio CD in the macbook pro and nothing. No spinup – just spat it out as it did any other disk that we tried. Took it to the genius bar and the mashita optical drive was declared dead. This MBP is 2 years old and out of warranty for 1yr. I explained that this laptop lives on a desk and is used after hours only. It probably has seen 25 cd’s in it’s short life. Apple offered to pick up the labor and install a replacement for materials cost $114. Made the appointment and called Apple the next day to tell them that under the circumstances I felt they shouls just cover the whole cost and let the drive manufacturer pay for the drive. They agreed and I’m picking it up today – no charge. THATS customer service!

    500$ for a memory upgrade? I built my own PC posessing this kind of money (Asus MB, Phenom II proc., 8 GB RAM). Additional graphic card raised all costst to around 750 $. Greedy Apple.

      Agreed! a Newbie to linux who around every corner finds a new reason to love it

      “Increasingly, Apple is not for do’ers. It is not for power users. It is not for creators. It is not for people who think different. It is for posers. It is for hipsters. It is for metrosexuals. It is for wannabes and pretenders.”

      Which is very sad as I used to be able to tell people that Apple products were a premium product for those who wanted to be able to do specific things and do them very well… Now it is simply a cult leading sheep to pay increasingly outrageous amounts for increasingly substandard products.

  • A. Trent

    Welcome to Linux- Free Territory in the world of computing !

    No OS is perfect, and if someone tells you their favorite OS is perfect, then they are mistaken or a liar. What makes Linux my choice is that I can take a crack at fixing what is broken. I can change things to how I want them. Instead of awaiting a “Mandate from Heaven” to determine my fate, I get to have say in it.

    I used to find Apple interesting, but when they bragged about the “new” feature of full screen apps as though it was some innovation, they lost me. Any experienced Windows or Linux user knew that was a joke the moment they heard it.

  • GAMA

    One of the drawbacks of internet today is that people such as yourself get into my computer with pathetic, too-long, boring, frustrated pieces of text that lack style and coherence.
    I don’t mind; move to Linux – wish you luck; I didn’t need to know that.

    Let me enjoy my Mac, please.

    • Oh suck my dick and call it Fred you anonymous coward.

      “Got into your computer”?

      Way to blame someone else for your own actions.

      You just took my bandwidth and unlike every other website in the known galaxy, you didn’t even have to look at a single ad to do it.

      This website doesn’t exist for your entertainment you self-absorbed ass, and I don’t write articles for you. In fact, I’d rather you not come to this site.

      Wait.

      Hold up.

      I was wrong.

      Completely wrong.

      As a matter of fact, I did write something just for you. Please accept this customized article as a token of my gratitude for your patronage.

      http://www.seattlerex.com/everybodys-a-critic/

      Or take that URL, and stick it up your ass.

      Either way.

      P.S. Oh, and one last thing. You didn’t need to tell us that you were a Mac user. The rest of your comment left absolutely no doubt as to that fact, you shaved scrotum of a retarded primate.

    • Chuckreis

      That’s some funny shit.

      Who made you read the article? Do you really care what some asshole on the Internet writes so much that you cannot enjoy your choice of computing environment?

  • Derek

    …geez what a windbag.

    • Oh look. Lucky me. Lucky, lucky me. “I’m an anonymous Internet commenter, and I have something to say!”

      *sigh* I’m so glad that I turned comments back on. I actually missed these oh-so-informative cranial defecations from random Internet bitchass punks.

      Alright then, Derek, critique taken, but in the interest of fairness, why don’t you give us your URL so that we can all surf over and pass judgement on you?

      Oh, that’s right, you’re anonymous. Like pretty much every other Internet commenter. A person so proud of his handiwork, that he wants no association with it whatsoever. Not that anyone would blame you.

      You see, Derek, this will come as a shock, nay, SHOCK to you, but this article wasn’t written for you. In fact, I’d prefer that you anal warts who run around leaking your puss all over the Internet stay away from my site. It’s pieces of shit like you, the two hundred million “oh look, I’m a critic because I have a web browser and nobody knows who I am” dime-a-dozen fuck nuggets who have killed off the fun of blogging, as well as other creative endeavors.

      After all, when you realize that 99% of the people who consume your stuff are fucktarded dickholes, the morale to continue just isn’t there. And so, the only reason people bother anymore is so that they can plaster five million ads across their redundant sites. People who contribute nothing, take everything, and tell us what they think in the process like Veruca Fucking Salt’s wicked step-whore. Thanks for wiping your worm-infested ass with the Internet Derek. Thank you so much.

      Now I know, I know, mommy and daddy said that you’re the most speciliast boy in the whole world. They ran around in circles praising you every time you passed a nugget of excrement into your plastic port-a-potty. They were wrong, though. They were wrong, Derek, and that’s why they secretly hate you. They had dreams, big dreams for you Derek. Doctor, lawyer, or at the very least, fireman or police officer.

      But, look at you. An effeminate, unempathetic, pissy little man-child posting drive-by insults on blogs, and quite frankly, not even good insults. This is what it’s all come to. The culmination of 18 years of attention, love, and the best education money could buy. Anonymous, recycled, one-line insults on the websites of people you don’t even know. People who never even invited you to come over and share your thoughts. People who don’t even know who the fuck you are.

      But, you tell them, “Mom, Dad, I’m creative! See, I have a MacBook and everything!” You tried to buy an identity, you tried to buy a creative lifestyle, and look where it got you. “…geez what a windbag.”

      Well golly I take it all back, because all of the resources that went into making you the man you are today was money will spent. Lest there be any doubt that you did not turn out a success, Derek, let that doubt now officially be dispelled.

      “Geez, what a windbag.”

      And with that, much like the Grinch’s heart, the collective IQ of the Internet grew three times larger that day.

      Thank you, Derek, for being a consumer, not a creator, but a taker of content, a leech, a sponge, a pissy little coward who thinks, for some inexplicable reason, random website owners want to know what he thinks of their work, because hey, after all the world revolves around him. In other words, thanks for being a prototypical Mac user.

      In closing, suck my asshole, Derek. You and the other hermaphroditic cretins trying to buy the creativity daddy’s sperm couldn’t give you. Suck my asshole, and call it Steve Jobs, because it’s as close as you’ll ever come to french kissing your deity, you spineless bitch.

      Oh, and since you’ve already killed another 5 minutes, what’s five more Derek. Here’s one more article, and this time, I actually did write it just for you: http://www.seattlerex.com/everybodys-a-critic/

      Go ahead and read it, Derek, because we both know that you have nothing better to do, you diseased cunt of a fat, lazy whore.
